Margaret Longden has been appointed as the new Co-Managing Director of Countrywide Residential Lettings.
Margaret will join John Hards to help lead the business through its biggest period of expansion to date, with more than 150 offices expected to open over the next 18 months.
Countrywide Residential Lettings is part of Countrywide, the UK's largest estate agent, letting agent and property services Group, which operates more than 1,300 branches and helps 50,000 tenants and landlords every year.
Announcing the news, Nick Dunning, Commercial Director at Countrywide, said: "We're delighted to have Margaret on board and feel her dynamic and motivational leadership style will be a huge asset to the team. The next 12 months will be key as we continue to expand our lettings presence through acquisition and organic growth to generate annualised lettings revenue in excess of £100 million across our 1,300 offices."
Margaret will oversee the company's expansion in the North and Midlands, while John Hards will manage branches in London and the South.
Margaret joins Countrywide after a long and established career in corporate finance and acquisitions. Margaret first became involved in estate agency after joining the Connells Group on secondment from the Skipton Building Society to co-ordinate the acquisition of Sequence (UK) Limited from Royal & Sun Alliance.
In January 2004 she took on the role of Divisional Managing
Director for the lettings division of Sequence. Margaret's dynamic
and motivational leadership style has helped drive the Sequence
lettings business forward to become an award winning and high
profile industry player. During this period both income and
portfolio size trebled for Sequence, and profitability grew fifteen
Margaret Longden, Co-Managing Director at Countrywide Residential Lettings, said: "I'm thrilled to be joining Countrywide during such an exciting time for the business. The pace of change and expansion is exciting and I'm looking forward to working alongside John Hards as we embark on an exciting new chapter for Countrywide."
